Islamabad [Pakistan], October 31 (ANI): Pakistan has returned the five remaining helicopters to the United States that were given to them to monitor its border with Afghanistan.

According to the Geo News, the U.S. gave a total of nine helicopters to Pakistan in 2002, out of which four were returned on October 15.

The Ministry of Interior's air wing had been using the choppers for anti-narcotics operations and combating terrorism, according to sources.

Now, it would be difficult to monitor the Pakistan-Afghanistan border as the Ministry of Interior is left with only three Cessna aircraft in the air wing, the insiders added. (ANI)
